Indian Men's Hockey Team will take on Russian Federation at FIH Olympic Qualifiers”

The men's team will play back-to-matches against Russian Federation in Bhubaneswar on November 1 and 2 to make it to the Tokyo Games.

Pakistan's hockey team, ranked 17th in the world, face an uphill task to make it to next year's Tokyo Olympics after being paired with the Netherlands in the qualifying draw on Monday.

"We knew the areas we had to work on to be in the best form to play two back-to-back matches and we are working towards winning them and qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics 2020", she added.

Head coach Danny Kerry said: "Malaysia are a good side with some great individuals and a number of threats, but having played them recently gives you that understanding of what that threat is".

Both play-offs will take place over two legs with the winning teams earning spots at the Tokyo Games.

The Canadian women made the Olympic qualifier by virtue of their runner-up finish at the FIH Hockey Series Finals in June in Valencia, Spain. "Our focus is not on the United States team but on us, how better we perform". "In terms of the women's team, we are delighted to be at home 18 months on from our World Cup success and play a game of importance here in Dublin".

"Canada is a team that is progressing and that was evident when they beat USA". That they held No 2 Australia - the highest ranked team in the Olympic Test event they won three weeks ago - 2-2 is also to be noted.

Eight-time Olympic champions India are ranked five in the world while the Russians are placed 22 in the FIH world rankings. They're devoted to attaining the Olympic Qualifications, and in that pursuit, we continue to focus on enhancing our defense and functioning on generating quality chances in the circle in this continuing camp. He said, "We have built some good momentum with this young squad and I am satisfied with how focused this unit has been. All the players are confident, very excited to take part in the FIH Olympic Qualifiers at home and they are charged up to achieve the team's goal", stated Sjoerd Marijne. We are focusing on continuing the brilliant communication on the field and maintain our level of performance.

According to the FIH, the final participation in the Olympic Games for any team must be approved and confirmed beforehand by their respective National Olympic Committee.
